Sugar Blue continues his artistic journey without boundaries. This latest project by the eclectic harmonica virtuoso traces his musical travels from his earliest beginnings in New York to the very roots of the Blues in Africa, capturing the music's deepest identity where everything started, embracing its evolution and looking ahead to the future with gratitude and enthusiasm. Backed by a quartet of equally eclectic musicians, this show also features Petit Solo Diabate, the amazing multi-instrumentalist from Mali who transcends barriers, connecting the Blues aesthetic and jazz language. A powerfully fresh take on classics from the African American tradition and new arrangements of Sugar Blue’s originals— intense and emotional....not to be missed !
